    My new Peachick has mites. The place I got him from was so bad and now I find this out. I'm so upset. What can I do ??

    You can try Poultry Protector, it's Citric acid and safe. I don't know if you can use Permethrin on a chick but adults I know you can. Citric acid shouldn't hurt the chick. Same with Sulfur. Those are three external parasite treatment methods I know off the top of my head.

    A drop or two of Ivermec Pour-on will kill lice. I have never had mites. Do you know the difference?
